For Her

Chinese rice paper, thread, 2018, 49"w x 7.6"h x 3"d

Birth, death, illness and old age are human nature. Both of my grandparents passed away in the last three years; I didn’t even have a chance to say goodbye to them. I guess that many people might have had similar experiences. In order to keep the memory of the relatives who already left, I wish I could make something to hold a memorial ceremony for them. In Chinese culture, white paper flowers are usually used for funerals or tomb-sweeping to show respect. In the meantime, the feelings of denial, frustration and depression are going through my body.
